Who Uses Node.js in Financial Services?
Some of the largest – and most unknown – users of Node.js in the world are in the financial services industry.
In Financial Services, there are some pretty extreme compliance requirements that companies need to meet — and Node.js has proven flexible enough to meet these requirements.
Before heading out to Open Source Strategy Forum next week, we wanted to capture some of the most interesting cases of Node.js in the Financial Services industry.
PayPal – Node.js at Epic Scale
PayPal is currently the largest public deployment of Node.js in the world. They were an early adopter of the flexibility and speed that Node.js is able to provide and one of the first enterprises to enable their teams to use the platform.
Capital One – The Node.js Powerhouse
Capital One has been investing in Node.js as a core platform tool for some time now. Over the past few years we’ve seen them engaging more with the broader community and sharing some of their experiences and insights into having thousands of developers touching their Node.js tooling.
Be it having the platform as a central shared skillset for its developers to using it as a way to begin to challenge existing ideas and effect change, Node.js seems to have been a truly driving force in digital transformation at Capital One.
Node.js in Financial Services, Across the Board
Fidelity Investments was using Node.js for a homegrown PaaS platform to mimic that of Heroku, enabling a streamlined process to move code from dev to prod.
Citi Bank was using Node.js for Mobile Services, with a relatively complex architecture using Hapi.js.
